The Liberty Way Walk

Commemoration on May 8

 

« The Way of Victory and Liberation was punctuated by sacrifice and heroism. It reminds the coming generations of the great and fervent solidarity of free nations and the French people’s imperishable recognition of those young, noble American sons who, irresistibly, chased terror and slavery away from our despoiled and mutilated land.»

Vincent Auriol

Paris, March 1, 1947

Commemoration on November 11

 

The only road that enabled the front to be resupplied is 60 km long and stretches between Bar-le-Duc and Verdun. In the thick of the fighting, it facilitated the transport of 90,000 men and 50,000 tons of equipment per week.

For millions of men, The Sacred Way was the first and often the last stage in a sorrowful ordeal.
